Fall colors in the Rocky Mountains

Over the weekend it dawned on me that I really didn’t have anything to run on the cover of the Clear Creek Courant. So I drove up to Mt. Evans only to realize that the really windy weather we had a couple of days before would ruin any chance of a fall colors photo spread. Smooth move on my part. Way to miss that opportunity. A little frustrated I drove up Squaw Pass and then down Hwy 103 into Idaho Springs. When I reached Idaho Springs I noticed that the water wheel had been dressed up for Halloween. So I wandered toward it and got lucky with some great fall colors. The trees and plants near the water were in full fall color. Shot some wide, shot some tight, stopped down opened up and even trespassed a little. All in all I think I came up with a few good ones.
